In common superhero mythos, unearthly, other-than-human, or more-than-human figures use their many extraordinary abilities to restore order, do battle with evil, uphold justice, and protect the innocent. Acting as guardians, protectors and defenders of Earth and its people, these courageous figures have long captured both our attention and imagination. However, with the rise of several notable media franchises, superheroes have become a ubiquitous part of our present popular cultural moment.

In this premiere print and online edition of Panic at the Discourse: An Interdisciplinary Journal, the editors invite submissions on topics including, but not limited to:

Teaching Graphic Narratives

Graphic narratives offer a wide variety of doubles and doppelgängers. Secret superhero identities and Gothic doubles create unique possibilities for exploring the self, power, perception, and the potential for other realities, while graphic narrative adaptations of a literary work highlight other ways of seeing and interacting with a text. Graphic narratives encompass worlds beyond fiction as well, with graphic memoirs and textbooks in a wide range of fields from rhetoric to literary theory, history, and science.

Writing allows our students to consider multiple perspectives and take on a variety of different roles, from personal reflection to creative writing, rhetorical analysis, and professional discourses. This focus on writing roles and identities gives students the opportunity to explore and develop different parts of themselves, from self-reflection to becoming engaged citizens and mastering the skills they will need as professionals. Foregrounding the notion of duality and multiplicity in student writing opens the door to several different critical discourses in considering audience, purpose, and students’ engagement with multiple texts and argumentative positions central to their own research and writing.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

The Peterloo Massacre has been dubbed “the bloodiest political event of the nineteenth century on English soil” (Poole 2007, 111). Its psychological, sociocultural and political reverberations reach far and wide. The approaching bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre calls for reappraisal and questioning through the (sometimes) distorting, yet revealing lens of narrative – that is, through the numerous ways in which Peterloo has been represented and retold in literature, art, on stage and on film. Writing about popular protest in 1819, John Gardner states that “Events are usually ephemeral and those present are often unclear about what actually happened.
